Everything Bread

You have heard of everything bagels. So why not everything bread?  I saw this recipe for it in my Taste of Home Oct/Nov issue way back in 2010 and it sounded delicious!  I had to try it out. This recipe was my 5th post as part of  Bake for the Cure that I did back then. 

Let me say that this was fabulous.  I love all of the “everything” on the top of this, especially the salt.  The bread itself was also yummy. So if you really don’t want “everything” on top of this loaf, it would be excellent naked! Or get creative and top it with cheese, herbs, or both.

The bread’s taste and texture was similar to the recipe I have for homemade french bread.  Any recipe that includes egg in the dough is usually fabulous! This bread is even good a day or two after you make it. I find that is not always the case with homemade bread.

With this recipe you make your own combination of seeds, dried onion, and salt for the everything topping. However, if you have an everything topping in your pantry, just use an equal amount of that instead. That is what I did when I made the updated picture for this post.

  • 1 package 1/4 ounce Fleischmann’s active dry yeast
  • ¾ cup warm water 110° to 115°
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk 110° to 115°
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon each sesame caraway and poppy seeds


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a 20-in. rope. Place ropes on a large greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Combine egg white and water; brush over dough. Combine the salt, onion and seeds; sprinkle over bread. Bake at 375° for 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.

  1. This is a really good blog site. I have already been back once or twice over the past week and wish to join your rss implementing Google but can’t figure out the best way to do it exactly. Do you know of any guides?

  2. My step-son loves everything bagels AND bread, so I will certainly be making this if I win, and really even if I don’t 🙂

  3. I just went and bought the spices for this bread as soon as you posted it, so I would definitely make this recipe if I win (and even if I don’t win!)

  4. My homemade breads with egg never have worked very well–maybe I should try this one or maybe I will make my usual whole wheat bread.

  5. I was eyeing this recipe in my Taste of Home magazine, myself! Thanks for the feedback; I’ll have to make this!!

  6. I love everything bagels. I have always wanted to try to make bread, but I am not sure I am willing to take on the challenge. However, my 3 year old has been asking for Puppy Chow. So that is what I would make with the pink kit.

  7. That looks so good! I just bought some delicious Portuguese rolls, so I am on a bread kick right now. I would definitely give this a try if I had a baking kit!

  8. Yum! Too bad I always mess up the yeast in breads.
    If I won I would make pumpkin bread or pumpkin cookies – something pumpkin! And I can’t wait til your Pumpkin Week! 🙂

  9. This looks so good! I can’t wait for my new Kitchen Aid mixer to arrive tomorrow. This recipe is going on my list to break that red baby in!

  10. I saw this bread too. It is still sitting on my things I want to try page on my blog. 🙂 Glad to know it is tasty.
    As far as what to make with a pink baking kit – today popcorn or chex mix sounds good. Probably because I have to bring some to the ward talent show on Saturday.

  11. Making bread intimidates me, but I just learned how to make homemade rolls, which wasn’t too bad. Maybe I’ll have to try this recipe out. I’d love to use the Bake for the Cure kit to attempt to make homemade bread.

  12. This bread looks wonderful! I’ll be trying it out soon…thanks! As for the baking kit, with baking season upon us, I’ll be making all kinds of treats and breads (and have already begun)!

  13. Nothing nicer than the smell of bread baking.. That and getting to eat it whilst it is still warm from the oven..
    I love my bread with many meals..

  14. I just love bread and this recipe seems like it would be great to have with spaghetti. You are so good at searching out some great recipes.
    I think I would try to do this using the baking kit but putting garlic salt and parmesan cheese on top and baking that.
